As Darlynne Overbaugh was driving home from work Monday, she thought she saw a deer in the corner of her eye by Route 96 in Trumansburg.
“I said, ‘Oh no, it’s a deer,’ because those live in our area,” Overbaugh said. “But it wasn’t.”
The animal she saw is more typically spotted in Australia than Trumansburg: a kangaroo.
The manager of an educational exhibit for Eudora Farms, a mobile petting zoo based out of Salley, S.C., was walking Rocky the red kangaroo on a leash before it got away. After a chase, the manager was able to regain control of the kangaroo.
